Digg recommendation engine

Kevin Rose writes that Digg is launching a recommendation engine that "uses your past digging activity to identify what we call Diggers Like You .. [and] suggest stories you might like." Good to see it.

MG Siegler's posts at VentureBeat ([1] [2]) include some early reviews of the feature.

Please see also my previous posts on Digg, especially "Digg struggles with spam" and its discussion of how recommendations could reduce spam by mitigating the winner-takes-all effect.
